Start spreading the news…

Category : Uncategorized

I am preparing to go to France, to visit my father. Going back “home” after deliberately moving to another continent has always evoked some very deep feelings for me… This time even more so, as there is a celebration planned to honor the first anniversary of my mother’s death. Also I am an only child, the only “treasure” left to a very lonely father; heavy stuff! By the same token, I am not so unique as a child: it is likely that I have a few cosmic brothers and sisters who also feel divided about going home for Thanksgiving! Have “I” come to loving me enough to not react to the words or actions of my father, and salute the divine in my most fated human relationship: this of my parents? Have I evolved enough and took back enough of my projections that I can be totally with him while still staying with me? A line of the song New York, New York comes to mind: “If I can make it there / I’ll make it anywhere…” Yes, it is up to me, as the initiation is akin to this of a Zen student who practices meditation in the midst of the most chaotic room ever! Yesterday, I was apprehensive; today, I am grateful for the opportunity granted me – to be the wise woman who smiles at everything unconditionally, especially the scars. Moreover, it warms my heart to know that I am taking you with me, the witness of my being open to trans-form…

The Miracle of LOVE

Category : Uncategorized

I have always loved words. Words, and colors. For a long time, they were my only friends, my playmates, my confidants. They were whom I turned to when I wanted comfort, or needed to renew my faith or my self-esteem. Today, it seems that everything changed. I saw the face of my Beloved, not for what it could give me, not because I asked what it could do for me, but simply because I opened my heart to the miracle of LOVE. As I received the gift that words and colors had always gave me, I also received you, my brother and sister, in a way that I may never have seen or heard you before, unconditionally, without making a demand on you for anything; just in gratitude for knowing that you are on this planet at this time, and in appreciation to have you as my friend. You are the Beloved, and together, we are One! I understand the words, not only their meaning or etymology, but essentially their sense, as I feel deep within me the lover, who once sung: “my cup overrunneth…” Yes, it overflows with the many blessings that I humbly send in all directions, to you and you and you and you and you, infinitely so…

On Groundhog Day

Category : Uncategorized

Today is Groundhod day, 2/2/16, one of the eight spokes of the yearly wheel of life… Beloved Groundhog, show me how to dare going in to see my shadow, so that I’d stop “doing the same insane thing, expecting different results…” May I have the courage to keep diving in; may we all do and know the grace to transition from being “foolish-falling” to descending as Aleph, the Fool in LOVE. We will then breathe an air thick with angels, and dance with a gravity that salutes the divine of us,.. We will be catching rainbows and glittery raindrops, as we ever and forever recommit to hearing and listening to the “heART” of the One, resonating with awe at having received the Power to trans-Form, harnessing for God and for good the energies of LOVE. Today is Christmas, Thanksgiving, Shabbat — the first day of “my” life. How will I use my time today?
